### "Estimating chaos and complex dynami..." refers background in this paper

...It was therefore not surprising that the recognition of chaotic dynamics in ecological models (May 1974a, May and Oster 1976) was followed immediately by the search for chaos in existing population time-series data (Hassell et al. 1976)....

...In particular, two broad classes of stochastic mechanisms important to populations have been widely discussed: demographic stochasticity and environmental stochasticity (May 1974b, Shaffer 1981)....

...For example, the familiar one-dimensional, discrete-time logistic model forecasts dynamical changes (bifurcations) from extinction to equilibrium to two-, four-, eight-cycles, etc., to chaos as the birthrate parameter is increased (May 1974a)....
